How do I make a phone call using my x1 carbon?

2019-05-07, 23:09 PM

So I recently bought myself a new x1 cabon and I'm very pleased with it. But I'd really like to know if it is possible to receive / make calls using the integrated SIM slot. So far I've only managed to receive some SMS texts using the built in software from windows.

Does anyone here know there is software available to make calls? Or even if there is some API available, to where I can write my own software to, to do this.

 

Thanks!

There is a slot inside where you can add an optional WWAN mode, but not all the machines have the antenna wires.  Assuming you do, you would need to get another phone number .

I’ve already got the WWAN module installed, it is just that I cannot really find any software to make calls.

Sorry.  I was answering the wrong question.  I have only ever used WWAN for data, never voice.I hope someone else can add something more helpful.
